Ever year Montblanc honour a great literary figure, as part of their writers limited edition. In 2006 it was Virginia Woolf – 75 years after the publication of her novel “The Waves”, the pen takes it’s design cues from this famous work. The finely engraved guilloche body and cap, in the form of waves, are crafted from black precious resin.
The most eye-catching feature is a faceted ruby on the gilt clip, symbolising the individuality of Virginia Woolf’s avant-garde style and the climax of her literary creation.
Virginia Woolf is considered to be one of the first representatives of classical modernism. She developed the story-telling technique of the “interior monologue”, which she used most consistently in her novel “The Waves”, which appeared in 1931. Virginia Woolf shaped this avant-garde technique with an expressly feminine subjectivity and autobiographical elements to create milestones in feminist literature such as “Orlando” or “Mrs Dalloway”.
The pen is fitted with a black refill.
The important details are as follows…
With every pen that we sell we provide a card that includes the manufacturer, model, serial / limitation number and date it was purchased from us. We do this because our customers like to have documentation showing that it’s been purchased from a trusted seller. As the Financial Times said recently in their How To Spend It publication – “izods is an e-cache of ultra fine fountain pens”.
